5.0 out of 5 stars Old but good. 20 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was first published in 1948, (two years after I appeared on the scene) and was re-issued in 1970. The photographs and illustrations are from 1948 but wood-bending is wood-bending.

The contents of this book are as relevent today as they were when it was first published. It scores over most modern works in that being produced by the UK 'Forest Products Research Laboratory' it contains much needed technical data and tables relating to bending properties of different timbers.

A useful addition to any woodworkers bookshelf, a must have for anyone interested in bending wood either hot bending or laminating.Wood Bending Handbook

5.0 out of 5 stars wood bending handbook 17 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book , although an updated edition of the old classic text , I found to be most informative and well illustrated . I am an Engineer and design timber structures , some with curved timber . I think this book should be a useful addition to any Engineer's bookshelf . The section dealing with minimum radii for bending of different species of timber is very useful . I recommend this book to structural designers and architects .
